What wicks moisture, resists odor and dries in a flash? The women's Patagonia Capilene Air hoodie made from an airy blend of merino wool and recycled polyester.


Capilene(R) Air is the most advanced baselayer we've ever made. It has the greatest range of warmth and comfort of any of our baselayers, insulates even when wet, dries quickly and resists odors for day after day of use. Made from an airy blend of 51% merino wool from New Zealand and 49% Capilene recycled polyester, Capilene Air feels light and soft on the skin and stretches naturally to move with the body. We create the soft 18.5-micron-gauge-yarns used in Capilene Air with an innovative airblasting technology that dramatically increases the yarn's loft while reducing weight compared to traditional wool yarn. Our seamless 3-D construction eliminates chafe points throughout the entire garment and nearly eliminates wasted material. Soft, stretchy elastic knit in the cuffs and hem keep the garment positioned where you want it and add skin-pampering comfort for extended use. The hoody design has a high collar and seamless hood with anatomical shaping for additional warmth and a gender-specific zigzag knit texture to trap warmth and allow airflow.


Before you head out to hit the slopes, go for a snowshoe, or head for winter camp, layer up with the Patagonia Capilene Air Hooded Top. The airy wool blend wicks away moisture as your heart rate rises, and the natural odor resistant properties of the Merino wool will keep you fresh the whole day on the slopes. You'll have total freedom of movement as you pole plant thanks to the seamless 3D construction and the soft stretchy material. The seamless construction also ensures you'll be chafe free as you move around in the mountains. On particularly cold days, the high collar hood with anatomical shaping can be pulled up under your helmet or beanie for extra warmth.
